The island town of Busuanga relaxed its restrictions on incoming guests as COVID-19 cases continue to decline.
The antigen or RT-PCR test requirement for vaccinated individuals was removed by town mayor Elizabeth Cervantes in Executive Order No. 128-2022 issued on Monday.
Only partially or non-vaccinated individuals have to show negative antigen/RT-PCR tests within 72 hours of boarding time.
If the accompanying parent or legal guardian is completely vaccinated, the COVID-19 test may be waived for traveling minors aged five to 11 years old who have not yet been vaccinated.
For children below five years old, antigen or RT-PCR test results are also no longer going to be asked if their parents or accompanying adults have been fully vaccinated.
The relaxation of travel requirements corresponded to the continuous decline of COVID-19 cases in Busuanga.
Busuanga has remained COVID-free for the past three weeks.
